The United States Senate has passed a resolution declaring October 20, 2009 as the National Day on Writing highlighting the National Gallery of Writing and a webcast of special events. Sponsored by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), the National Day on Writing is "collecting a cross-section of everyday writing through a National Gallery of Writing" to "better understand what matters to writers today."
The Gallery of Writing will collect writing in diverse styles from people across America. Contributions will be accepted until June 1, 2010 and will be open to readers through June 30, 2010. Be a part of history and submit a recent blog article, story, poem, email, or audiovisual piece.
